Frequently Asked Questions
A: WE’RE A WIFE & HUSBAND TEAM! We run our photography business together and we LOVE every single part of it! We also battled for many years trying to conceive and then doing IVF many times to get our daughter, so we really do know what families in similar situations have gone through and why these moments are so precious.
I am a QUALIFIED CERTIFIED GOLD COAST NEWBORN BABY PHOTOGRAPHER through the ACADEMY OF NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY.
I am here for YOU, every step of the way. You’ll become part of my client family. You are my priority. You can contact me anytime. Only I, Tanha, will handle your precious baby. I promise to get your images to you in a timely manner. You will receive the best customer service I can possibly give, and that is always my main goal. You will get to experience tears of joy every time you look at your photos. That is what I want for you.
I have photographed OVER 1800+ newborn babies, and having had two babies myself, I am aware of the emotions new parents go through, and I completely understand the natural instinct of a mum & dad wanting to protect their precious baby. Because of this I have created a studio that is very safe, highly sanitised and a place to take a moment to stop and really absorb the beautiful family you have created.
I have been told I am one of a kind, even been called a “white Unicorn” lol, and believe it’s true! I make sure my clients are looked after to my best ability and that the artwork they receive is the best they can get!
My clients tell me to my face that they’re so happy they made the best choice in having me photograph their newborn, older baby or family.

A: YES YES YES!! Absolutely, I most definately am, as is my immediate family.
A: I highly recommend ordering all of your wall art and prints through me. I use only professional print labs that don’t service the public. My editing software is calibrated with their printers so your images print perfectly, exactly how they were intended to be viewed. All prints get approved by me when received.
A: Yes, we offer direct debit payment plans through Pay Advantage. These are no interest options. Allows you to break your order into smaller payments recurring until the final amount is paid. You then receive your order after the final payment is made.
A: Yes! At your session, you will be asked to sign the release so you can use your image files to print for personal use.
A: For studio sessions on the Gold Coast, your images are loaded straight onto the cinema screen for you to sit back and order. The ones you select are then meticulously hand edited. But they do look amazing straight out of the camera, this is why I am so confident to show you straight away. For outdoor Gold Coast sessions or sessions not held at the studio you will make a viewing & ordering time within the next 7 days after your photography session.
A: From a Gold Coast newborn session, if baby was settled, there will be roughly 35-40 stunning images to choose from. For outdoor family sessions there can be between 50-100 images.
A: For a full newborn photography session there will be 5-7 setups plus family posing, depending on how settled baby is.
A: Thats just part of working with babies! They run the show, and they’re my little bosses. If baby is awake then I will take awake photos for a short amount of time, and then baby will need to be wrapped and comforted back to sleep. I can only try all the tricks I know. I like to use white noise, shushing, pacifiers if needed, mums can feed extra, and sometimes dads just have that magic touch too. Only babies that are in a deep sleep can be unwrapped and posed in naked or semi-naked poses. Please try to have zero expectations on your new precious baby. The main thing is getting beautiful photos, not forcing them to do poses they’re not comfortable doing. If your baby is crying and we can’t settle them with what we know usually works, we will discuss rescheduling.
A: Your session fee or deposit is due to secure a session on the Gold Coast. Because births are unpredictable, your session is able to be moved to accomodate. If you do cancel within four days prior to your session, a reschedule fee of $200 will be required to secure the next available spot. This is why it is very important to keep in contact with us leading up to the birth. I will check in with you about 7 days before our session via email to check if baby has been born, you will need to allow a few days at home to rest before coming to the studio.
